Professional Care Workers’ Day
August 1, 2019
Wednesday, September 4 is the date for the second Professional Care Workers’ Day which celebrates all that is good about people who work in care.
The event is organised by the National Association of Care and Support Workers (NACAS) which, now in its third year, has several hundred members.
NACAS chief executive Karolina Gerlich said the event would be a celebration of care workers who aimed to deliver fantastic care each and every day.
“We are going to shout out loud that care workers are skilled professionals who need to be respected and valued more,” said Ms Gerlich.
“We want the industry to come together and applaud people that are there day in and day out, in the snow, scorching sun and pouring rain, at night, at Christmas and on Sundays.”
The event has won the support of several sponsors including food service company apetito, and is supported by the major social care provider associations.
